Farewells

I’ll never understand the expression “Parting is such sweet sorrow.” I mean, what’s sweet about it?

I’m writing here with a broken heart. Weeping, really. I’ve just made one of my greatest sacrifices as a mother, saying adieu to 98% of my closest friends. You know, Leon Uris, C. S. Lewis, Martin Luther…

Yes, I’m still stuck on the books thing. Great as public storage is, I’ll miss my personal library. So here, in no particular order, are the five books most difficult for me to pack away…

So... you're parting with your books? Are they looking for new homes, maybe? Might they like to take up residence ... um... HERE?

Well, they're parting to our storage bin, but I'm counting the days until we meet up again in 14 months. You are MORE than welcome to serve as a foster mother to any of of them! ;) (I labeled all the boxes by topic so I can find things easily.)

This is so sad.

I'd cry.

*weeps*

I want to add: what a sacrificial and creative momma you are!
